Resource parents are responsible for providing transportation for children.  This includes transportation to medical, dental, vision, court and therapy appointments. 

When appropriate, transportation may be needed to school, work, and other school-related activities.  When transporting children the following rules apply:

  1. Only approved adults over the age of 18 may transport the foster children. 
  2. All foster children must use seat belts.
  3. Children under age six (6) and 60 pounds must use an appropriate child safety seat.
  4. The vehicle must be insured.  The agency must receive confirmation of car insurance on an annual basis.
  5. Children may not ride on motorcycles.

The Level of Care (for reimbursement) takes into account transportation provided by the resource family.
